now. here in the city we're holding with temperatures in the lower 50s. it's 52 degrees. it's slow to fall here in town. the wind is still blowing just a little bit. gaithersburg has come up out of the 30s back up into the lower 40s and ght depends on -- we have the clear skies, the cooler air coming in behind the front earlier today. so that's funneling in, but if the winds stay up a little bit, it will keep temperatures from bottoming out in places. you can see most of the readings around and to the west of us are calm. here in the city we're still 13 miles per hour. that's what's keeping temperatures up in the lower 50s and i suspect that overnight tonight wind speeds will be down around 5, 6 miles per hour. so it definitely means it's going to be real cold in spots. freeze warning in places north and west. that includes montgomery county, just a frost advisory here in town and down to fairfax county, prince george's county and over towards the bay and anne arundel county, but again all those purple counties north and west, that's where it's going to get real cold tonight flirti
